Bodies of newborn babies in a state of decomposition in intensive care at Al-Nasr Hospital in the northern Gaza StripThey are still attached to the tubes that were supposed to keep them alive. Those obtained by CNN are “chilling scenes,” in which diapers and bottles appear on beds next to the bodies of at least four newborns. CNN explains that the photos were taken last November 27 by Muhammad Baalousha, a journalist from Gaza who works for the Emirati newspaper Al-Mashhad. Some of the newborns photographed are little more than skeletons, while flies and worms appear on the newborn’s body.
Journalists were unable to access the northern area of Gaza for several days due to intense fighting, but the video obtained by CNN was filmed during the truce between Israel and Hamas. Since the beginning of November, Al-Nasr and Al-Rantissi Children’s Hospitals, part of the same complex, have been on the front lines of the fighting. Medical and healthcare staff in Al-Nasr said they had to quickly evacuate on November 10 under pressure from the Israeli military. Doctors admitted they had to abandon newborns in intensive care because they could not transfer them safely.
A doctor at Al-Nasr Hospital told CNN, on condition of anonymity, that two children, ages two years and nine months, died shortly before the evacuation, but three children were still alive and on ventilators. One of those who survived was two months old. According to the doctor, many of the children who were admitted to intensive care were suffering from hereditary diseases. In a video clip dated November 9, the medical director of Al-Nasr and Al-Rantisi Children’s Hospitals, Dr. Mustafa Al-Kahlot, said that Al-Nasr Hospital “was bombed twice,” resulting in “many casualties.” of harm.”
